Tonight the Stanley Cup Final begins and the Blackhawks aren’t in it. That means the offseason has officially begun for Stan Bowman, and there will be changes made to the roster before next season kicks off. What those changes will be, we don’t really know just yet.
The Blackhawks need to make a change in net, but it has nothing to do with Corey Crawford.
Antti Raanta had a bad night in the net on Tuesday. It wasn’t all his fault as the Blackhawks defense made its fair share of mistakes in front of him, but sometimes you need your goalie to bail you out. Raanta hasn’t been doing much of that in his time with the Blackhawks this season.
